St. Louis drivers could soon save a little time at the gas pump, thanks to an old idea that's brand new again. Gas pump nozzles with clumsy, plastic sleeves are being replaced with old-fashioned, sleeveless models. That’s because newer cars are designed to trap the fumes, making the plastic covers unnecessary.

New gas stations can use the traditional nozzles now. Older stations can switch starting March 15th. Gas customers at a new station on Manchester Road say the sleeveless pump nozzles are a lot easier to use.

Pacific, Missouri-based Husky Corporation is making the change easy and inexpensive for station owners. The company's EZ Connect nozzles can replace existing nozzles in a matter of minutes, meaning stations won't have to shut down pumps for an extended period of time.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources had planned to hold a meeting in St. Louis on Tuesday about the gas pump change. But the meeting has been cancelled because of the winter storm in central Missouri.
